Jenna Hernandez – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Spring break is all about having fun and making the most of your break from school. Now that break is over it’s time to get back to thinking about the community. Key Club knows this and has already started signing members up for upcoming service projects in Manatee County.
Some of the upcoming events include –
Mother/Son Night at Braden River Elementary: From 3-9 p.m. on April 6 at Nathan Benderson Park, 5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, Sarasota. Come out for fun filled Mother/Son activities and help with all the different themes, booths, and snacks.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to funding Type 1 Diabetes research. So, if you want to walk, man a booth, or you’re just looking for a reason to wake up early in the morning on a Saturday, come and help at this event.
Walk a Mile in Their Shoes: From 7:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. on April 14 at LECOM Park, 1611 9th St W, Bradenton. This event is focusing on homeless and at-risk children in Manatee County.
